CHANGE OF NAME
A Change of Name Deed is a legal document that proves a change of name.
A Change of Name Deed contains three declarations and by executing the Deed you are legally committing yourself to:
- Abandon the use of your former name;
- Use your new name only at all times;
- Require all persons to address you by your new name only.
Changing your name after marriage
You don't need a Change of Name Deed if you want to take your husband's surname after marriage (unless you want to double-barrel your surname). If you send a copy of your marriage certificate with a covering letter, your documents and records will be changed to show your new surname, for free.
Changing your name after divorce
After getting divorced, you may be able to back to your maiden name by presenting your marriage certificate and your Decree Absolute. However, some organisations my not agree to change your name back without a Change of Name Deed.
Our Solicitors charge a fixed fee of £150.00 plus VAT and we will also provide you with 2 certified copies of your Change of Name Deed.
